Get busy living or get busy dying Your only choices here Get busy laughing or get busy crying I think your choice is clear Playing opera in the prison yard Doing taxes for the prison guards Old men institutionalized No such thing as easy time They see you're bookish and they try to exploit you That was their first mistake Ten years of planning and their cruelty conspired To fuel your prison break Playing opera in the prison yard Doing taxes for the prison guards Old men institutionalized No such thing as easy time Don't you know we're all innocent here?

Blade Runner 02:41
Who programmed your humanity? Who decides your reality? Trapped in this meritocracy Erase your future history More human than human Emotions are confusing So hard to explain Can't trust whats in my brain It's all manufactured My memories are fractured More human than human They quantify your empathy They synthesize your history They build enhanced technology To mask their lack of sympathy More human than human Emotions are confusing So hard to explain Can't trust whats in my brain It's all manufactured My memories are fractured More human than human All these moments lost in time.

"It's a classic movie" It's almost 3 hours long Tell me why it's good I'll tell you why you're wrong Awful people doing awful things Then blame it all on a cocaine binge This guy Tony he's a piece of work You think he's cool but he's just a jerk He killed so many people Treats his wife like shit He's not an antihero He's just a dick We waited so long For Tony's little friend We thought this fucking movie Was never gonna end Awful people doing awful things Then blame it all on a cocaine binge This guy Tony he's a piece of work You think he's cool but he's just a jerk He killed so many people Treats his wife like shit He even killed his best friend He's probably proud of it His mama tried to warn him I guess he's just too sick He's not an antihero He's just a dick

Be punk do crime Be punk do crime Be punk do crime Cos there's nothing left Be punk do crime Be punk do crime Be punk do crime This is so intense Get sushi and don't pay for it Drive 2 miles above the speed limit Drink booze when you're 17 Dine and dash at the Dairy Queen Be punk do crime Be punk do crime Be punk do crime Cos there's nothing left Be punk do crime Be punk do crime Be punk do crime This is so intense Loitering outside the liquor store Return some clothes that you already wore Sneak into an R rated show Carjack a UFO Be punk do crime Be punk do crime Be punk do crime Cos there's nothing left Be punk do crime Be punk do crime Be punk do crime This is so intense

You better run girl, because he's coming for you You better run girl, there's nothing else you can do You better run girl, cos you've got nowhere to hide You better run You'd better stand back Clear out Don't stop and don't start looking Keep out Beat it Cos you don't wanna know what we've got cooking You're not invited so stay away If you come inside here you're going to pay You should have seen the signs cos they were everywhere You should have seen the signs but you just didn't care We tried to tell you so but you just didn't hear You should have seen You'd better stand back Clear out Don't stop and don't start looking Keep out Beat it Cos you don't wanna know what we've got cooking You're not invited so stay away If you come inside here you're going to pay So mind your business and I'll mind mine Just keep your distance and you'll be fine

Polite society That don't mean shit to me I've got no need for shame Cos all I crave is fame Walk the walk, talk the talk Make them think about it Walk the walk, talk the talk Make them sick about it That's obscene Yeah it’s a brand new scene That's insane Yeah it’s all a game That’s too much But we can't get enough That's bizarre No, it's a work of art Walk the walk, talk the talk Make them think about it Walk the walk, talk the talk Make them sick about it Disgusted and despised My eyes on every prize I'm gonna take it all So step aside when you see me coming Walk the walk, talk the talk Make them think about it Walk the walk, talk the talk Make them sick about it That's obscene Yeah it’s a brand new scene That's insane Yeah it’s all a game That’s too much But we can't get enough That's bizarre No, it's a work of art Walk the walk, talk the talk Make them think about it Walk the walk, talk the talk Make them sick about it

Lots of people want to die Cos they're afraid to be alive Lots of people wonder why But it's really no surprise She found you and you knew from the start She saw through the frozen walls of your heart You're head over heels Her hands on the wheel She's gonna drive You're right by her side No need to hide Step into the light Feeling alive Maybe for the first time You were dying inside She brought you to life At the end of hers There's nothing to fear You'll be alright from here The kinds of things that we survive The kinds of things you can't describe These are the times that make you wise These are the days that shape your life She would say don't waste your time on their games They complain she has her own way to play You're head over heels Her hands on the wheel She's gonna drive You're right by her side No need to hide Step into the light Feeling alive Maybe for the first time You were dying inside She brought you to life At the end of hers There's nothing to fear You'll be alright from here

Freaks 03:01
What makes you so different from me? You think we're just something to see This freak show is our family Step right up, come see what we're made of You'll get what you paid for All of the cheers All of the jeers All of the towns It's hard to remember where your friends are We know who we can trust Your lies won't save you from us When all this settles to dust You know you can never be one of us Removed from the hate and the greed Our lives are much more than they seem Protecting our community Don't cross us you'll see what we're made of You'll get what you came for All of the tears All of the fears All of the towns It's hard to remember where your friends are We know who we can trust Your lies won't save you from us When all this settles to dust You know you can never be one of us

Real life doesn't do it for me Feels like you're inclined to agree So if you feel like living tonight Well honey just follow my lead Cos it sure feels like You might like what you see What are you into? Where did you come from? You're looking hot as the sun Squeaky clean American dream, I think your time has come Well you're a long long way from home But that don’t mean you're alone Break free and stick with me If you wanna have some fun Well if it feels right Baby don't turn away What if your whole life Was leading up to today So just listen to your body Don't be shy honey Don't let your mind lead the way Just let it all go, don't spend your life being afraid What are you into? Where did you come from? You're looking hot as the sun Intergalactic beauty queen, I think your time has come Well you're a long long way from home But that don’t mean you're alone Break free and stick with me If you wanna have some fun Well nobody ever told you it could be like this Nobody ever told you why Baby all it takes is just one kiss To really show you the light You were a good girl once but those days are gone So wipe that tear from your eye I got what you need Let's go for a ride

Don't let them tell you cos you can't sell tickets You can't be who you are Don't let them tell you cos you can't sell records You're no longer a star Cos you're a life time rocker and this tour's been trucking Since before they were born They don't know where you've been They don't know what you've seen They don't know where you come from Don't they know who you are? We can't stop rocking so don't come knocking If you don't know how to rock When we start rocking there ain't no stopping All we do is rock Don't need no schooling cos we're too cool and We only know how to rock Rock is life, life is rock Rock is rock n roll They're gonna tell you that your songs aren't clever You don't need to explain They're gonna tell you that you should be better You don't need to explain Cos LOUDER IS BETTER LOUDER IS BETTER LOUDER IS BETTER LOUDER IS BETTER LOUDER IS BETTER LOUDER IS BETTER LOUDER IS BETTER LOUDER IS BETTER The critics will complain but Are you not entertained? We can't stop rocking so don't come knocking If you don't know how to rock When we start rocking there ain't no stopping All we do is rock Don't need no schooling cos we're too cool and We only know how to rock Rock is life, life is rock Rock is rock n roll
